good luck on the upcoming test!

Thanks
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck to you too on the October test. I felt like it wasn't too bad, but you just never know after taking a test. Well, actually, I knew I did badly after the June test! Let's just hope that the scores come out well for both of our well beings.

Chile
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

I just saw that you did an internship in Chile! I used to live there, but in the northern part (Antofagasta). Wonderful place, eh?

Congrats!
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Great job on the retake! It did many of us a lot of good!

you too
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

you too sir - re-take pride; are you really gonna apply to all those schools?

congrats
Tuesday, June 17 2008 at 08:00 PM

on the lsat score. doesnt it feel good to have it behind you finally? visited duke over the weekend, so im kind of pumped about the cycle now instead of feeling quite so anxious. and good luck with your schools as well.

LMAO
Sunday, October 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

well put lol. Took my LSAT in June, and most of them started coming in late August-September. A few of the nicer ones (Duke, UMich, Chicago) came about a week or two after my transcript was on file with LSAC so I guess GPA was a factor. Good luck with your cycle!; i'll be keeping an eye on you since we're number twins.

Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

thank you, yes decision on the same day I went complete!

thanks man
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

yeah, so far, so good. i'm sure you'll be having some good news yourself soon. best of luck.

Wednesday, November 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

^ Is me. Was apparently not logged in. Looks like we have similar approaches to the east coast. What's your first pick?

lol
Sunday, October 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

thanks. I'm still pissed at myself for waiting so long with my favorite schools; now i'm getting nervous and wish I had just submitted earlier. It's awesome that you were able to wipe your hands clean of the application portion of the process in a timely fashion. Good luck to you too!

congrats!
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

gtown! cool stuff. and BU too! off to a good start.

thanks!
Sunday, October 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

yeah dude, it doesnt matter now. Congrats on G-town btw! You should have a lot nice acceptances coming up!

Thanks and Congrats
Thursday, December 11 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Congrats on your acceptances as well. Gtown is a great school to have in the bag this early on in the cycle.

Thursday, September 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

You too, man, I think you're gonna do quite well.

you SOB!
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Berkeley!!! that is so awesome - congrats man, for real. too cool.

Thursday, July 31 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Berkeley!!

congratulations!
Thursday, July 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

I just saw your message. Good job on Berkeley, BU, and Georgetown! Looks like you'll have some hard choices to make, but that's damn lucky in this case. I actually just ended my cycle with an Early Decision acceptance to Georgetown today!! I'm excited, maybe we'll be classmates next year, but, with Berkeley in the mix and still to hear from some of the other big dogs, who knows? Good luck on the rest of those apps, and, again, congratulations.

thanks
Thursday, November 27 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good luck the rest of your cycle. Seems like you are off to a good start already.

thanks
Tuesday, June 17 2008 at 08:00 PM

and congrats to you on penn and berkeley! looks like you're having an amazing cycle as well.

nice
Thursday, July 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Penn. I'm really interested to see where you end up. You're killing it right now! Good job!

Thanks!
Friday, July 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

and congrats to you too on UCB and UPenn! Pretty much same #'s so I suspect you'll be hearing some good news from NYU soon as well. Good luck with the rest of your cycle.

Thursday, July 31 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Duke and Penn!!

Congrats!
Saturday, June 14 2008 at 08:00 PM

Looks like you're having a pretty nice cycle yourself so far! Glad to see my obsession has helped you find out the good news sooner. Maybe I'll see you at an admit weekend somewhere!

sweet
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

UPenn now? and Mich - man, you're having a great cycle. you leaning anywhere yet?

thanks and
Tuesday, October 21 2008 at 08:00 PM

congrats to you! those acceptances are just piling up, huh? Congrats on BC and Cornell and Duke and Boulder and Penn and $ from BU and Michigan! I will keep you posted; you do the same :)

schools
Sunday, October 26 2008 at 08:00 PM

thank you! Congrats to all of your acceptances. I got some fee waivers from Washington, Chicago, Temple... so I'll probably apply there, and maybe Cornell. Currently living in Denver. Where are you going?

Thursday, August 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

Not yet...all this waiting, it's awful! =]

no I haven't
Thursday, July 03 2008 at 08:00 PM

but I don't have access to my mailing address until the 17th- if it's there I'll let you know :)

nope, nothing yet
Friday, October 31 2008 at 08:00 PM

(in terms of a packet from Berkeley). It seems as though a bunch of schools are admitting people faster than they can keep up in terms of materials. I'm okay with that (far better than waiting to hear), but it would be nice to start reading about our options!

LAS
berkeley packet!
Thursday, August 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

just came in the mail today =]

re: same decision date
Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

My packet from Berkeley just got here two days ago

Berkeley Packet
Thursday, December 11 2008 at 07:00 PM

Nope, I still haven't received my Berkeley packet. Have you gotten yours since you last messaged me?

NYU
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM
